I'm browsing in Safari SUPER FAST. Wow.

 

$2.99 -- worth every penny.

It's probably just the placebo effect but I swear I'm staying on LTE a lot better after the update. The last few weeks at work I would look and see I was on 3G or even 1x a lot. An airplane mode toggle wow fix it for a while. Today it's never lost LTE.

This is very possible. iOS 8.4 brought along with it a disaster of carrier bundles. Hopefully this issue has been resolved ESPECIALLY since the new iPhone is releasing next week and the last thing Sprint should want is customers getting their iPhone 6s and being locked onto 3g or 1x, or a congested b25 or b26 when b41 is available. I haven't been out and about yet so I have no opinion on it yet.

From what I am experiencing in downtown Nashville, the new carrier bundle for Sprint (21.1) is doing a much better job in prioritization of which band it uses. Band 41 was the band of choice in the earlier bundle provided by Sprint.  My iPhone would have a death grip on 41 and not let go.  Even with toggling the airplane mode, the phone would eventually return on 41.  With all of the development that has happened in the area, 41 has been overloaded and very slow (< 1mb down/up) most times of the day.

 

Now with the new bundle, the phone will go to 41 but discover (I think) that the data speed is very slow and will switch to 26 and stay there.  Yesterday on 26, I did a Speedtest and saw 15 down and 6 up.  I hope this is the case.  It will make the experience for Sprint users more pleasant.

I've yet to see an increase in battery life, so far it has been the same which is already what I'd consider reasonable at 5 hours once I get down to 32%. I charged before bed for a change to try battery saving mode. Went to bed with it at 97% and woke up at 95% compared to probably about 92% if I had done that before. So that appears to help some. 

Probably my worst problem with iOS 8 was the keyboard lag, now that's fixed but I now get a lag when sending messages where the text doesn't smoothly transition from the typing box to the message bubble all the time now. 

 

Overall this has been the least buggy iOS upgrade I've had since iOS5. 6, 7, and 8 all had some kind of problem that required me to restore 2-3 times before it working right.

There are animation hiccups system wide for me. Not horrible, but they're present. I also have the text delay problem. I give it a week before Apple releases 9.0.1 to solve these issues.

Idk I have been experiencing good battery life or at least it feels like great battery life compared to when I had my 5c. Id only get like 5 hours of usage. Now I'm getting 6hrs 30 min to 7hrs 30 mins. Also today I used the power saver option when it go down to 20% unlike yesterday.

Another idiot with the golden goose who let his emotions restrict his cash flow. The same thing happened with the flappy bird creator. Let me code a number one app that brings in thousands upon thousands of dollars. I promise I won't have emotions.

 

Edit: or, some huge advertisers cut him a massive check to pull it so they can continue business as usual.

I think what happened is that his tech press friends (John Gruber, et Al.) got pissed that he was making $3 off their loss of revenue. Most of these tech blogs run ads from The Deck, which was rightfully blocked, so they saber-ratted.

I've dumped the Facebook app from my phone for now. Two days in a row, I've woken up to a loss of 15% battery because of that app. It was always running, and had 11 hours of background activity since I last charged up. That's quite terrible.

    • Curious as to how SCP works with it regarding NSA, particularly in markets with n41 BW=100 and second channel.
    • Downloading now. ****DVK3, 2.3 GB in size. 
    • T-Mobile eNB 879491/879493/879494 on the keep site map is located at 40.77536940167816, -73.92011957697034. Sprint eNB 5762 is now T-Mobile eNB 306271. Located at 40.582064139078206, -74.16175767702059 Weirdly both of the new Sprint conversions that have been found in Staten Island (eNB 306271 and eNB 326459) were sites I visited earlier this summer but neither of them were broadcasting the keep PLMN at the time. In fact, Sprint eNB 5762 was completely offline when I visited. I suspected both sites were keep sites based on their location relative to neighboring T-Mobile sites so I was surprised when I didn't spot 312-250 coming from them. Glad to see T-Mobile still kept them. Also T-Mobile isn't done with non-conversion new builds in the city. T-Mobile eNB 894075 is a brand new site added this summer on Rockefeller University's campus in Manhattan. It gives me hope for neighborhoods like Red Hook and Williamsburg that desperately need sites along the waterfront.
    • Nearly every site I encountered in the Bronx was running N41 SA. Consistent pings in the low teens and speeds were actually great. Sprint eNB 9294 got converted but isn't live yet. Location: 40.83091697219704, -73.8178106151994   Sprint eNB unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 310677 Location:40.880070855974395, -73.83644046611454   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894775. Bonus speed test with 2CA and N41 SA. Location: 40.8989406640668, -73.84564472722599   Sprint eNB Unknown, now T-Mobile eNB 894854. 40.86220687471859, -73.86242513896488
